My doctor has told me I need to lose weight. Is there anything available within my local leisure centre to help me?
We run a Healthwise Physical Activity Referral Scheme, together with the Eastern Health and Social Services Board (EHSSB), to encourage people with specific health conditions to take up physical activity.
Our health and fitness staff can develop a keep-fit programme to suit your needs and monitor any improvements to your health.
The 12-week scheme is suitable for a range of health conditions, including those with a body mass index of more than 25.
The Healthwise scheme is available at all our leisure centres but you must be referred by your GP or healthcare practitioner.
